What is Electrolysis?
Unlike shaving, waxing, or other conventional hair removal methods that only remove the hair at the surface, electrolysis targets hair at the source underneath the skin surface. Using gentle heat-based energy, the hair follicles are disabled and the growth center of the hair is destroyed.
Unlike laser-based hair removal that utilizes pulses of laser energy emitted from a handheld device, electrolysis uses a very fine probe to disable hair follicles and then pluck the individual hair shafts out using tweezers. Our experienced medical team is highly trained in this procedure, ensuring optimal results.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Modern electrolysis has evolved to be a comfortable, safe procedure that allows patients to immediately return to normal activities with relatively no discomfort throughout the procedure or after. Treated areas may appear slightly red or flushed after treatment, which should subside within a day or so. Our medical team will share any other relevant safety information with you prior to your procedure.
Am I a Good Candidate for Electrolysis?
Men and women who are interested in a more permanent solution to shaving, waxing and other methods of hair removal using advanced technologies may be good candidates for this procedure. The best way to determine if this procedure is right for you is to schedule a consultation with our medical team.

Is the Hair Permanently Gone?
Electrolysis is widely recognized as being one of the most permanent forms of hair removal on the aesthetic market. There are several factors that influence hair growth, including the natural hair growth cycle which consists of three different phases. It may take multiple treatment sessions to fully remove all hair in the designated areas, and our medical team will discuss what you can expect and your treatment options during your consultation.
